Now that the spring evaluation period is upon us, many college coaches around the country will be scouring the nation in search of the top available high school and junior college prospects still available, while other college programs will be looking to gain a jump on the nation's top talent in the younger classes - especially the 2015 junior class.
One of the top prospects in the state of Arizona's 2015 class is Westwind Prep Academy's 6-foot junior point guard prospect Ny Redding. A native of Ohio, Redding ventured to the state of Arizona this season to attend Westwind Prep where he quickly emerged as one of the state's hottest 2015 prospects.
Redding is a pure-point guard prospect with a nice overall feel for the game and a propensity to score the basketball for himself, while creating many scoring opportunities for others around him.
Redding has seen his share of college recruitment this season, as many college programs have visited the Westwind program this school year - leaving with a strong interest in the talented guard prospect for the future. Redding has seen his college recruitment soar this season after averaging an amazing 29.8 points, 8.7 assists and 2.1 steals per/game this season, while averaging only 1.2 turnovers per/game. He also shot 53% from the field and 89% from the free-throw line.
Redding is currently hearing from Utah, Rutgers, Cleveland State, North Texas and Central Florida, with many more schools looking to get involved with the talented guard prospect. With Arizona's 2014 class receiving so much national attention, the state's 2015 class does not have many prospects currently that are receiving such attention as of yet. Redding is one prospect in the state that could garner such attention before it is all said and done.
Redding is a quality point guard prospect, and is currently among the top-rated point guard underclassman prospects in the state, alongside Sammy Thompkins (Sunnyslope), Tarion May (Cesar Chavez) and Brandon Hoffer (Chaparral).
I will be keeping a close eye on Redding this spring and up-and-coming summer months to continue to evaluate this young man, while bringing you any recruiting updates as they continue to develop.
